Community Stage Connections

Community Stage Connections artists Alex and Olmsted discuss their involvement with the program.

The Community Stage Connections program has connected communities that have limited access to the arts with live arts experiences for 30 years. We currently work with non-profit organizations that serve communities with limited resources and mobility. Working in collaboration with these venues, and a roster of participating performing artists, The National arranges easily transportable theatrical and musical performances free-of-charge for the residents and communities of these venues. With the help of a generous donor that has been supporting this program throughout its tenure, our artists are paid an honorarium for their work. Due to COVID-19, performances have been live-streamed to participating venues since October 2020.
